Cub Scout Tour 1/10/13

Tonight we had a tour for a local Cub Scout troop. There were 7 scouts in all.

The Scouts got to try on our turnouts, with many expressing that they were just way too heavy. 

We want to thank the Scouts for touring Station 95 and welcome them back any time.

Brownie Brittle

Thanks to Shiela G's for sending the delicious Brownie Brittle. Station 95 was honored to receive this treat and to show our appreciation, we had to take a picture.

Front Row: FF Heglin, FF Schick, Lt. Varner, and FF VanGelder
Back Row: FF Colt, Lt. Everman, FF Scanlon, Capt. Perkins, and FF Hairston.

For those who don't know what Brownie Brittle is, you can check it out here.

And the consensus from the crew is that this would make an awesome cereal.
